The face, neck and décolleté are important and fragile parts of feminine beauty. Indeed from thirty one can notice a slackening of the skin, loss of volume or wrinkles which alter the natural elegance.
Dr. Christophe Desouches offers you a global and tailor-made approach to rejuvenation and beautification of the face using aesthetic medicine, in particular with injections of hyaluronic acid.
Beauty-creating hyaluronic acid
Injections of hyaluronic acid not only restore youthfulness but also improve the beauty criteria of a face.
It is possible to restore proportions and create balance in every face.
This requires a detailed knowledge of the rules of harmonies and proportions.
Noticeable results in one session and without surgery
The injections discreetly and naturally improve the tired appearance of the treated areas, face, neck or décolleté. They do not interfere with muscle mobility and therefore have no effect on facial expressions.
However, if the areas treated by the injections are generally much improved, some deep and old wrinkles cannot be completely corrected.
The duration of action varies according to the products, the areas to be treated, the injection technique, the type of skin and the lifestyle. Generally the correction fades after 6 to 18 months and the treatment must be repeated to maintain the results.
Hyaluronic acid: what is it exactly?
It is found involved in many rejuvenation and beautification interventions, at the level of the face, the neck, the silhouette, the intimate areas.
It is a substance naturally present in the skin. It is a polysaccharide whose main function is hydration of the dermis. The finished product is supplied in pre-filled ampoules. It comes as a transparent gel that is injected into the skin tissue to smooth fine lines, correct deeper wrinkles or restore facial volumes. This product is completely absorbable. It is not of animal origin but is the result of a synthesis. It has been used for many years without risk in various therapeutic applications in ophthalmology and rheumatology.

What happens during a session ?
The days preceding the injection, it is recommended not to take medication that alters the fluidity of the blood (aspirin, anti-inflammatories, etc.) in order to reduce the risk of bruising.
Anesthesia can be performed before treatment using an anesthetic cream or, more rarely, injectable xylocaine.
The hyaluronic acid is placed with a fine needle in the dermis, under the wrinkle in order to raise the bottom of it. To restore volume to the face, the injection will be deeper and will have a larger volume.
After hyaluronic acid injection
During the days following the treatment, exposure to extreme cold or intense heat (sunbathing, spa, etc.) is not recommended. However, no socio-professional eviction is to be anticipated, you can resume your work or your social activities at the end of the session.
There is usually slight swelling and redness. The final result is visible after the disappearance of the oedema.
The duration of the result depends on the type of hyaluronic acid used and the treated area.
A new injection is usually needed after 6 to 12 months.
